Meet the Author

Robert Hurst is a native Coloradan who is just happy to be in one piece after working for ten years as a bike messenger in Denver. He celebrates his continued survival by spending time pedaling his bike nearly seven days a week in Denver during the day and along Colorado's Front Range on the weekends. A 1990 graduate of the University of Colorado, he is the founder of Trails, the insider's source for mountain biking destinations in the Rocky Mountains, and is the author of Mountain Biking Colorado's San Juan Mountains (2001) and The Art of Urban Cycling (2004), both published by Falcon.
